These are just the living expenses, not the support costs

The expenses are not comprehensive, but a common example

CSO (Community Service Organisation):
The DSP is $689.00: 75% of $689.00 = $516.75 + Rent Assistance of $47.20 = $563.95 paid to CSO as an Accommodation Fee. Client, therefore, has $172.25 + DSP Supplement of 59.80 = $232.05 for personal expenditure, clothing, etc.
All figures are pf.

With an annual expenditure of (example):-

ATSS Placement Fees $1019
ATSS Program Fees 960
Clothes 500
Pharmacy 500
Personal Expenditure 1440
Total pa 4419

CSO Client's surplus after "Living Expenses" (see above) $232pf = $5568pa
4419
1149pa
Client has remaining $48pf

DHS (Department of Human Services - Victoria)
The DSP is $689.00 + Supplement of $59.80 + Rent Assistance of $47.20 = $796.00 - $321.76 Rent & Housekeeping/Utilities (Accommodation Fee) = $474.24 client, therefore, has for personal expenditure, clothing, etc.
